Where you'll be

We start at one of the King´s favorite haunts, a local institution, where we will sample a red or white wine & seasonal tapa. Then it's on to a vermouth bar to have an artisan version with one of their delicious ‘montados’. We’ll finish off at a modern bistro, no doubt we’ll try a pregnant ball! Be ready to volunteer to pour the cider after instruction from our expert waiter. All drinks come with generous tapas or pinchos.
